It's been a while, hasn't it?

I haven't been online here much the past view days (barely at all, really) because I'm been scrambling to get a ton of stuff done before my surgery on Wednesday which will at least temporarily take me out of commission. I had a long day of work today prepping about three weeks of ModBlog entries in advance (please excuse the typos which I'm sure are there)… Caitlin make me a bunch of delicious food to eat while I was working and left it for me yesterday but I guess because I didn't lock it up well enough it disappeared into someone else's belly so I went without my lunch sadly.

I had a dream last night that I was on Hell's Kitchen — and won: not that I can cook. So for supper I made a nice light meal of onion and yellow pepper in a fresh lemon and dill sauce with bay scallops on brown rice. I drizzled it with a sweet chili sauce, which was a mistake in hindsight, but it was still very good. I don't cook much with dill but I'm trying to expand my palette because I'm getting bored of making variations on the same thing over and over (not that this is so different).

I also did a little bit of painting this afternoon — other than a tinted glaze that I'll try and add tomorrow the Rookaiju painting is finally done. I haven't really painted very much (essentially not at all) over the summer; just haven't felt it. But I hate having incomplete work lying around and more than anything I hate staying still because nothing makes pain worse than sloth — no joke, I've found that the best way to deal with pain is obsessive workaholism because it keeps my mind off it. Extreme anger works as well, but I despise anger (is that statement an oxymoron?)…

Tomorrow is a day of cleaning this place up so everything is neat and tidy. I wanted to move out in August but I don't think it's going to happen until October for a variety of reasons. Hopefully I can get my spare room back soon now that I have my woodworking gear because it can't stay on my main story… I really want to get all my paintings framed, especially now that I know how to write the code to make my router carve and miter custom frames for me.

I got a bunch of rope but I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but it's always good to have rope around. It's really strong. I could hang a four hundred and fifty pound guy with it. I don't really remember any knots from sailing school very well other than how to tie a hangman's noose…

Well, I think I'll do a little more work and then call it a night.

I have a few good interviews sitting on my desktop at 95% — I'd meant to put them up this week but it's been a bit of a crazy week. With luck I'll still be able to post them before Wednesday but it may fall through the cracks…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
